A better Los Angeles is emerging from a city that was built for cars. Investments in light rail, express bus lines, and redeveloped neighborhoods are paying off. The LA Metro is a mix of transit with express lines serving downtown and LAX. And there’s gorgeous art deco Union Station, a hub for rail travel.
Downtown is the center for most of the city’s transit, but Westwood, Hollywood, and Koreatown have the urban density that make for walkable living. It’s still LA, so your best bet is to live close to work, but even if you commute, your home can be in a walking friendly neighborhood.
Some errands can be accomplished on foot.

Walk to the beach or walk to public transit from your Los Angeles single family home or apartment. You can find a condo with a shared patio, off street parking, and new appliances, or a studio with a balcony and a view.
Walk Score helps you find a two bedroom apartment with the shortest commute time, or a luxury studio that’s just a few minutes from the light rail or nearest supermarket. Beverly Hills and Brentwood have great schools, but they’re pricey. Downtown is still in transition, but it’s exciting. Santa Monica is lovely but traffic, it’s bad, be warned. Westwood is fun too, and really walkable.
